"Ilham Aliyev gave an interview to local media at a groundbreaking ceremony for the Absheron field offshore operations at the Heydar Aliyev Baku Deepwater Jackets Factory on September 19. In his speech, President Aliyev exposed the aggressive policy pursued by Armenia and the true face of the Armenian leadership with his convincing answers based on facts and historical realities. False and hypocritical statement issued by the Armenian Foreign Ministry in this regard shows that the country is still unable to admit the bitter truth."

Spokesperson for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Leyla Abdullayeva commented on the statement made by Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Azerbaijani President's interview with local media at the groundbreaking ceremony of  the Absheron field offshore operations. 

“The traditionally false and two-faced statement spread by the Armenian Foreign Ministry in this context demonstrates that this country is still unable to recognize the bitter truth. The aggressive Armenia, which doesn’t recognize the norms and principles of international law, which keeps the internationally recognized territories of Azerbaijan under military occupation and carried out ethnic cleansing there, created hotspots of the conflict in the region, which poses a serious threat to sustainable peace and security,” the spokesperson said.

Abdullayeva noted that like the previous criminal regime of the junta Armenia, the current leadership of this country is very far from a correct assessment of the situation in the region and the events taking place around it, from ensuring the interests of its own people.

“Unfortunately, Armenia still has not had a chance to pursue an independent policy based on national interests, to understand the benefits of peace, security, and prosperity in the region. The irresponsible and provocative action of the Armenian leadership exacerbates the situation in the region, minimizing the possibility of a peaceful solution to the conflict of which it is the culprit,” the spokesperson added.

“Attempts by the Armenian prime minister to change the format of the negotiation process, who have no grounds to put forward conditions for the negotiations, the delusional statement he voiced in August 2019, the attack of the Armenian armed forces on Azerbaijani positions on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border on July 12-16, 2020, the attempt of provocation undertaken by the sabotage and reconnaissance group of Armenia on August 23, Armenia's demonstrative policy of illegal settlement in the occupied Azerbaijani territories and other similar provocations are a blow to efforts to resolve the conflict politically, and all responsibility for this lies directly with the leadership of Armenia,” said Abdullayeva.
